Infinity Kingdom have a new Immortal taking the field. Louix IX also known as Saint Louis or Louis the Saint, was King of France from 1226 to 1270, and the most illustrious of the Direct Capetians. The child king was crowned in Reims at the age of 12, following the death of his father Louis VIII. Now, he has grown up and is ready to battle it out with the olther historical figures in Infinity Kingdom!

General Info

  • Role: Frontline damage dealer (magic damage!)
  • Lightning element

Louis IX is the first non-backline Immortal to deal magical damage. This is a huge step in a new direction, one where we can build marches focusing hard on magical damage (like we can now with physical). I imagine a lightning march with Louis IX, Hammurabi, Baldwin or maybe with Ragnar/Attila (unique) to be extreemly poowerful as it stacks up the magic vulnerability of the opponent.

How to unlock him?

He is one of the two new Immortals being released as the reward from Legion of Frostborne’s first conquest season.

He will be in the SvS boxes, and available in the shop afterwards. The shop has 3 types of available bundles resetting daily.

  1. The first bundle costs 1.99$ and contain 1x chest with 5-10 Fragments inside.
  2. The second bundle costs 2.99$ and contain 1x chests also with 5-10 Fragments inside each.
  3. The third bundle costs 4.99$ and contain 2x chests with 5-10 fragments inside each.

You will get around 30 Fragments for 9$ = around 18$ to unlock him. See below for info on maxing him.

Shop Bundles

The shop bundles are not availble yet, will be as conquest finishes. But they will be identical to the ones we have now for the season 2 and season 3 Immortals from SvS.

For more info on the shop and bundles, please see: Game-shop-all-the-bundles/all-bundles-available/

Maxing Louis IX

He is NOT available in the Market nor in the Pearl Shop upon unlock. You have to max from the shop bundles. This will cost you a bit of cash, please see my calculations below if you aim to unlock and rely on him in your army.

Why is Louis IX interesting?

His ultimate ability is very interesting for a number of reasons:

  1. “Replaces magical attacks with your own physical attack” meaning that he does not deal physical damage with his autoattacks, instead his white hits scales off of magical attack as the first Immortal ever.
  2. On top of that he has a chance to deal extra magic damage to 1-2 enemies and adds a magical vulnerability debuff scaling to 20%

Many of the strongest ToK passives are magical damage (Annihilation, Chase, Stormeye, Overload, etc.) and these have the disadvantage of not being able to be run anywhere else than on specific ranged Immortals. Moreover, we have never been able to scale all damage off of magic, meaning even the most magical focused marches of today MUST also think of how to deal physical damage to be viable. No more! We now have the possibility to run 3x magical damage in a march setup, meaning we can focus on only running magic damage and magic vulnerability for this specific march! That’s awesome!

Louis IX does however seem like an Immortal that will not be very strong on his own, since 55% to deal a low 200% and only to 1-2 targets, will not be very strong. Thus I fear he is likely going to be a debuff’er, but things might change before he is released!
